    Wink Odd Coincidences.....

    Okay.....we all heard about 'six degrees of separation', a 'sixth sense' and wacky coincidences......

    My bro is a Lawn Guy Land (just like Big Daddy) and has a family, my family and I live in New York City (about 1-1 1/2 hours from watch other). It's been a very busy and chaotic Summer for both he and I, we haven't spoken in months, nor have we heard about what each other is doing, yada yada.

    Last week, on the way to driving us to the airport, my Dad says that my bro is also going to Disney, but he doesn't know details (BTW he always passes along incorrect information, what he doesn't know, he makes up as God's truth!), that was Wed. So we arrive in FLA and on Thurs nite I call my sis-in-law on her cell. She is in fact is on her way to FLA, they drove. I asked if she was staying on property, indeed she was, at Port Orleans....French Quarter....we were at Port Orleans...Riverside...(same complex, different end)...and that they would be arriving on Fri. We didn't discuss our agendas. I told her I'd call her the next day....

    We were busy in theme parks all of Fri and I didn't get to call. Sat morn, we ran to Epcot super early to get a head start and race to the back of the park to 'test track'. Hubby took the 2 older kids and I waited with the 2 younger and decided to call my bro while we waited. I look to my right and saw a rental stroller parked with my maiden name (also my brother's and a common name too)...so I get up and start looking at the bags attached to see any first names. The woman who was sitting on the other side started giving me weird looks like I was casing out someone else's stroller..LOL Sure enough, I parked my stroller right next to my bro's! Then he comes off the ride with my nefew.....

    I just think the whole thing is really strange......:theyareon

    *BTW we were going to stay/wanted to stay at the French Quarter but they couldn't accommodate us :(***

    Things like this happen to me all the time. Do they happen to you too? What's your story??

    Things like this happen to me so often that I think it's normal. Normal stories a kind of boring (not that yours is boring - I think of it is kinda neat) but if I think of one that I think is interesting I'll post it.

    My sister and I have pick up the phone to call each other at the the same time. It's weird when we haven't talk to each other for a few days and then we both decide at the same time to call each other. That happens alot.

    My youngest brother and I both get a dejavu at the same time. When I was telling him and my mom about it he said he was having them too. I thought he was making fun of me but it turns out that he was keeping track of every time it happened and it matched my history, w/ ten minutes. Neither one of us can thik of what sparked it or what we were even thinking. It still creeps me out.

    Hardly a coincidence. Happens to my wife but it's with her family.

    9 out of 10 times my wife will call me when I happen to be in the bathroom. There is no way for her to know except that she needs to call me right then (go figure)

    Same sort of thing happens with getting a financial windfall and the car decides it's time for it to get a new transmission or the refrigerator craps out or the car gets towed. Weird.
